The streets where the Olympic torch will travel in Allerdale, Copeland, Carlisle and Eden have been revealed.
Have your say
Stood on New Road to see the Beginning of the torch run into Whitehaven. The torch went by on the bus. There was a lot of disappointed people, who were wet and angry. New Road was listed in the local papers as one of the places to see the torch.
Talk about "cup half empty" comments! The ticketing system may have been shambolic but the torchbearing is completely fantastic. These Jonahs should read the achievements of these 'ordinary' people (torchbearers) - I don't know any of them but the opportunity to be involved is massive. Michael's comments have made me think though - the Council shouldn't have to waste our precious money cleaning streets - we should all pull together to discourage those who drop litter! I shall now go down to the Whitehaven route as early as I can with a bag and some gloves and pick up any rubbish I see. Community spirit - come on lads, get on board!
I have to agree with FR the Olympics has very little to do with any venue outside M25 with the possible execption of sailing. I probably not even bother watching on tv. If I could find a Olympic free zone I'd probably bug out for the duration.
